The Adventures of Gnorbert the Gnome – Meeting Gnora

Earlier this year we introduced you to Gnorbert the Gnome and his travels. He visited shows, the Coats & Clark Mill, took a few road trips and even a vacation. Even though he was having a wonderful time traveling around meeting all the wonderful yarn people, we was still missing something.

Decorate for the holidays with yarn!

At the Stitches show in October, we decided to pull out a bunch of holiday ornaments and show them on a tree. I had a ball of red Spark-a-Doodle and decided to make a garland. Before I started, I had no idea how it would look or exactly how I was going to do it. I wrapped round and round starting at the bottom. When I got to the top, I had a good bit leftover so I thought I’d use the leftover yarn ball as a giant pom-pom to top the tree. I simply inserted the remaining ball into a branch and Voila!  The result was better than I ever imagined. Here are a few other yarn and holiday ornaments that you could use in your own 2011 decorating. Continue reading “Decorate for the holidays with yarn!”
